Another frosty morning

We were greeted by more frost this morning, so of course I hopped outside to take photos. This winter… it’s been such a non-winter that any cold weather gets me chipper. I took photos until I couldn’t feel my fingers and I loved every minute of it. I love that crisp, fresh, winter morning air! I love it so much I stayed out a bit too long and since I wasn’t really dressed for it, I felt a bit woozy after I came in, as if a fever was about to set in 🤒. I’m alright now. Enjoy the photos!

By the way, these were taken with my Olympus E-PL1.

Hailstorm in October


The weather’s been really odd in Romania this past week or so. After meteorologists announced a long, warm autumn, the weather turned unseasonably cold — terribly cold — for October. It snowed up to 10 cm or more some places, and where I live, we had hail the size of small pebbles — in October, mind you! I for one have never seen this kind of strange weather this early in the year, not even when I lived in Vermont (NE US) during my college years. For comparison purposes, the first snowfall I saw in the Washington, DC area last year (in 2008) was on November 22.

I recorded a short video clip of the hailstorm as it fell last week, and also took some photos. Thank goodness the hail was soft, because it would have damaged cars and crops otherwise.
